    Help setting the selectedChild of a viewstack

    lkellyv

      I'm trying to grab a portion of the BrowserManager.fragment (I bring it in as an

       

      object) and then use it to set the selectedChild of a ViewStack. I'm running

       

      into a type conversion error.

       

      Essentially this is what I'm trying to do:

       

      o.view contains the portion of my fragment - say it is set to "sytems" with
      (.../index.html#view=systems)

       

      var o:Object = URLUtil.stringToObject(browserManager.fragment);

       

      I then try to set the selectedChild of my ViewStack with:

       

      myVS.selectedChild = o.view;

       

      I get the following:
      TypeError: Error #1034: Type Coercion failed: cannot convert "sytems" to
      mx.core.Container.

       

      I'm not sure how to make this work. Any thoughts?

       

      Thanks.
